Mora out to get even with Vera

Former junior middleweight titlist Sergio Mora (23-2-2, 7 KOs), who won the first season of "The Contender" reality series, lost a 10-round upset split decision in February 2011 against Brian Vera (20-6, 12 KOs), who participated in a later season of "The Contender." Mora has one win since but few options because his un-fan-friendly style has turned off the premium networks. So he'll take on Vera in a rematch on "Solo Boxeo Tecate" looking to even the score. They meet in a scheduled 10-rounder on Aug. 11 at the Illusions Theater at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
